Sacrista Prebend Retreat House

Retreats and conferences in Southwell, Nottinghamshire

Sacrista Prebend Retreat House remains closed but will be open for events from the beginning of July. We look forward to welcoming groups and individuals who would like to make use of the house.
We are currently holding some events outdoors or online. Please see below.

Sacrista Prebend Learning, Conference and Retreat Centre is a quiet space in the heart of Southwell.

The House, with its chapel and large tranquil gardens, is available for anyone seeking stillness and peace, for individual or small group retreat. There is a twice weekly Eucharist followed by fellowship. There is a programme of organised In House Quiet Days, and Sacrista is widely used by local and visiting groups as a place of prayer and meditation (link), and learning.

Subject to availability Sacrista Prebend and gardens can accommodate conferences and private functions. There are individual conference and meeting rooms for sessional use, and it offers overnight accommodation.

The House is one of Southwell’s historic Prebends. It is situated across the road from, and has stunning views of, Southwell Minster. Friends of Sacrista Prebend provide additional support. You can make a donation to Sacrista Prebend House and Gardens here.
